Tropical Storm Martin formed in the northern Atlantic earlier Tuesday. The storm is forecast to become a hurricane by Wednesday.

Tropical Storm Lisa continues to strengthen in the Caribbean. It is expected to strengthen into a hurricane and move toward Central America on Wednesday.

Thankfully, Martin and Lisa are not forecast to impact the U.S.

Another area just to the southeast of the Caribbean could develop this weekend and into next week.

An area of low pressure may form, and it could work its way back to the Southeast United States later next week.
